A meeting of musical minds as ever popular singing duo return to Roscommon Arts Centre

Roscommon Arts Centre welcomes Leitrim born singer Eleanor Shanley and classical guitar player John Feeley to their stage on Wednesday, March 16, at 8pm, for an unforgettable evening of music.

Eleanor and John first met in London in the 1990s, when Eleanor was touring with De Dannan. They did not meet again for nearly twenty-five years, when John was doing a show in Eleanor’s now hometown of Ballinasloe.

They have since worked on a number of live shows together and recently recorded and released the album Cancion de Amor which was recorded in St. Francis Church, Meelick Friary.

With a career spanning over twenty years, Eleanor Shanley is one of the most loved singers in our country’s folk music history. Whether as a soloist, or collaborating with De Danann, or her time collaborating with the late Ronnie Drew, that voice rings true with such lyrical emotion, every time.

John Feeley is highly regarded for his performance and recordings of new works by Irish composers, and has had many works written for him. He has been described by the Washington Post as ‘Ireland’s leading classical guitarist’ and by Michael Dervan in the Irish Times as ‘a trailblazer…when it comes to the guitar and guitar-playing in Ireland’.

Eleanor and John share a meeting of musical minds, loves and styles and out of this has come Cancion de Amor. They are delighted to now be able to share this body of work with a live audience.

Tickets for Eleanor Shanley and John Feeley are €20/18 and are on sale now from the box office on 09066 25824 and from www.roscommonartscentre.ie
